This is a fantastic racing game, especialy if you are tired of seeing little cartoony characters bounce around if you throw bananas at them. This is a cross between a real racing game and a powerup based kids game, but there is nothing childish about this game.
The gameplay is wonderfully simple and easy to learn, but the online community is starting to dwindle despite the quality of the game. You can challenge your freinds and power through the campaign (which is about 10-11 hrs, based on your skill) while competeing with eachother. In summery, fantastic game, and the online is still active do not worry.
For this bargin price, this cannot be missed!
